    Cat + Victoria Secret Bag = Fun

    Ok, I wish I woud've had the camcorder out...I'm still laughing over this.

    First, lets examine Exhibit A - cat.

    Hazel, our new kitten, is around 4-5 months old now. She's behaving more like a kitten now than she did even a month ago.

    Exhibit B is a paper Victoria Secret bag. Many of these make their way into this home, as Mrs. ISUFan22 works there part-time. Both exhibits are pictured below, a photo the Mrs. took last weekend...



    For the last bit of background information...a week or so ago, I decided one of these bags would make a decent toy for Hazel. She likes to climb inside things and even more so when you put one of her toys inside it.

    So, a few days go by, nothing odd. Cat gets in bag, cat gets out of bag, cat drags bag round.

    A few days ago, she was in the bag and abrubtly decided to get out of the bag. Odd thing is, her head got caught in the rope thing, as she went, so did the bag. As you well know, cats spook easy and this freaked her out - making her run faster. Fortunately for her (unfortunate for me) the bag flew off quickly.

    Tonight, that wasn't the case.

    I'm on the couch, watching the Patriots pound the Bengals. Brady and Moss connect once again, for the 100th time. Second after the catch, loud noise, scurry, hissing and running from the sunroom.

    I look out there, to see Hazel, running about in freak-mode, with the bag trailing her - the rope caught around her neck. I thought it would pop off quick. Nope.

    She runs from the sunroom into the kitchen, slides on the hardwood floor trying to take a turn - crashing into the fridge. Regaining her composure, but not shaking the bag, she sprints into the living room - bag still in tow.

    And the 2nd funniest part, and I don't lie - she leaps up onto the couch, leaps again to fly from the seat of the couch over top the back, onto the floor behind her. I'm still on the couch, the bag barely grazes my head, as she's STILL taking it with her.

    The...she goes down the hall, *crash*. I can't see her, but can only assume as she attempted to take a hard right into the kitchen, she slid on the floor into the door of the laundry room. Then, she appears in the kitchen again, sunroom, living room, runs around the couch, down the other hall.

    I get up, I'm laughing so hard I'm crying, but feel bad for her and am going to help out.

    Funniest part...

    There is a railing in our hall. She likes to run through it a lot. I get up and around the couch just in time to see her sprinting down the hall, taking a hard right through two rails in the railing (she goes though a part in which the stairs are about 2-3 feed below her, so running out to air, does this all the time). Yes, she still has the bag...speed shopping I guess.

    She gets though the railing, bag gets caught. (kinda sad part). Bag string yanks on her neck, head yanks back (end kinda sad part), behind goes forward. She flips, causing the bag string to slide down her chin and off of her as she's butt up, head down. Her legs are sprawled out, back claws fully extended.

    Does another half flip in the air or something, lands on her butt (literally) and falls down another stair.

    She gets rolled over, on her belly and just lays there. Looking around, her eyes are huge and she's panting like no other. She's still looking around, likely for the bag.

    She looks up, and above her spots part of the bag, hanging through the railing she just nearly pulled it through. She hisses, turns away and bounds down the stairs.

    And I still can't stop laughing.

    The the moment, finally, she's come back upstairs and is resting next to me on the couch, out like a light.

    You could have won $10,000 on America's Funniest Home Videos if you caught that on tape.

    My cat also loves bags. What is weird is that he hates grocery sacks...the noise those sacks make scares the crap out of him.

    I wish I was as easily amused as a cat...

    Re: Cat + Victoria Secret Bag = Fun

    My cat chases the lights from cars that drive by my house at night. No big deal. Except that because of the angle of the street and my windows the lights are always right above my head when I'm laying in bed. Four in the morning and I have a cat butt on my head.

    My cat loves bags too! After I come home from getting groceries I throw the bags all over the floor and it keeps him entertained all night!

    Oh yeah, the plastic bags are great. Our other cat got one of those caught around her neck...tore off running with the thing trailing her like a balloon and making a horrible noise.

    She was freaked, to say the least.

    Re: Cat + Victoria Secret Bag = Fun

    I used to like my cats, too....before I had kids. Now they just seem like more "needy" creatures.

    I hope my cats can't read this; their feelings might get hurt.

    Re: Cat + Victoria Secret Bag = Fun

    Back in the day, it would've been one of those thread. My brother and I were not nice to stray cats. Then again, we had a hog farm and stray animals carried disease - so about anything stray on our property without some sort of tags wasn't treated as a friend.

    That...and my brother and I ran a cat fighting gambling ring out of one of the farm houses. It was a pretty big deal, out there in Delaware County. We evaded the cops a couple times, had to go underground for a month or so. Made some good coin and man...some of them cats were mean. The dogs we brought in for training couldn't even last more than a few minutes.

    Fortunately, neither of us were the quarterback for the local professional flag football league - or the heavens would've come down upon us.
